Alexander Downer is a nobody

I'm with the US on this statement.

"The Bush Administration wants Australian Foreign Affairs Minister Alexander Downer to replace Mohamed ElBaradei as head of the UN nuclear watchdog agency.

Washington believes the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) chief is too soft on Iran's suspected nuclear program, the paper said, and is seeking candidates to replace him. Its top choice is Mr Downer, but he so far has been unwilling to challenge Mr ElBaradei.
Our original strategy was to get Alex Downer to throw his hat in the ring, but we couldn't. Anyone in politics will tell you that you can't beat somebody with nobody, but we're going to try to disprove that."
Update
"[...] the real question is how deeply Downer and the Howard Government have been involved in the White House's attempt to oust ElBaradei with an intelligence operation using US, British and Australian spying assets."
Anyone else very fearful that Iran will be the next country that the US has in its sights?

I'm thinking there's no more mileage in WMD's, the intelligent world is clear about the lie that was, but nuclear weapons will grab the attention of the people.

Sometime in the not too distant future...

THE PRESIDENT:
"My fellow citizens, at this hour, American and coalition forces are in the early stages of military operations to disarm Iran, to free its people and to defend the world from grave danger."

Downer is only slightly more qualified to run the IAEA than Aunty Jack.

See You, Aunty!
